Cold Electric Blue

1984, 16:00 minutes, colour, English


This tape was made with members of a class assuming different roles in a production. It is a comment on the producer's duty to play the role of director/dictator. It also questions the audience's role. The tape was made during a cold Canadian winter and is about trying to pass the time. As the producer commands and questions his crew and his audience, the tape ultimately questions his role in making the tape. It is suggested that perhaps those we believe to be in command are only puppets of some higher command.
